I kinda liked the lines… particularly the bridge’s cast-shadow (would’ve been nice to catch a train passing by, though). Have a great weekend, everyone!

Jack Whitman (after being thrown off a train): “Wouldn’t it be great if we heard a train go by in the distance?”

Peter Whitman: “Not really.”

Francis Whitman: “It’d probably be annoying.”

Sometimes I just can’t decide what to call these things… or what to say about them. Words. Anyway, have a great weekend, everyone!

Hannah Green: “And even though you’re book is really beautiful, I mean, amazingly beautiful, it’s… it’s at times… it’s… very detailed. You know, with the genealogies of everyone’s horses, and the dental records, and so on. And… I could be wrong, but it sort of reads in places like you didn’t make any choices. At all.”

Today’s post is a vague reference to cartooning legend Bearman’s green-haired avatar… and his annual charity challenge! If you haven’t already, please click here to find out how Bearman is once again donating his very own green to some great charities including: The Cincinnati FreeStore Foodbank,  The Brandon C Gromada Head and Neck Cancer Foundation and Crayons to Computers. It’s a good deal from a good dude.

Cookie-sheet abstract expressionism seemed like… a thing… to… try. At one point. Have a great weekend, everyone!

Harry Crane (of a Mark Rothko painting): “Two possibilities. Either Cooper loves it, and you have to love it, like, in an ‘Emperor’s New Clothes’ situation… or he thinks it’s a joke and you’ll look like a fool if you pretend to dig it.”

Salvatore Ramano: “People like him pretend they understand this.”

Harry Crane “Maybe he has a brochure in here, something that explains it…”

A different look at a park I shared last November (you’ve probably guessed I’ve had a chance to catch-up on a few ‘mysteries’ lately). Have a great weekend everyone!

Inspector Lestrade: “In another life, Mr. Holmes, you would have made a excellent criminal.

Sherlock Holmes: “Yes, and you an excellent policeman.”
